Start a new course with a student account

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is it possible to disable, in the student's account, the option to start a new course in Canvas LMS Free For Teachers?

When I change the student account role to TA, the option to start a new course disappears, but in this case it is possible to edit all course functions, almost as an administrator...

If the account is for a student, not for an instructor, why does it allow you to start a new course?... :smileyplain:

It looks like the FFT accounts have this feature enabled and cannot be turned off by the teacher.

That is correct, Layne.  Users have roles in Free for Teacher courses but they are course specific.  Someone can be a teacher in one course, a student in a second and a TA in another.  All users in Free for Teachers are allowed to create courses.
